Celebrate the Romance

Isn't it amazing how everyones tastes are different. They picked number 1!

I thought theyd go for number 3 as it has 7 squares and 7 flowers and as their big day is 7.7.07 making the 7's significant but that shows how wrong I am! The sample is winging its way to France right now for the final look over. Exciting stuff. Next it'll be figuring a colour pallette out for our own day, so much to do!!!

Anyway, on to this weeks Dare a very exciting colaboration between ourselves and the uber talented Speshal girls! We were challenged to make a really romantic scrapbook layout...on a card! Its fantastic to see two design teams working towards creating scrapping-cards, all the finished pieces are stunning and as individual as the talented people that made them.

Here's mine, pic of me and my wonderful fiance on our local beach squinting because its so sunny! I altered it in Photoshop to make it Sepia-ish Black and White. I bravely cut into my Basic Grey blush for this, and added primas, papermania brads ribbon and ric rac. Very simple really, especially given just how long it took to do! The Alpha is QK Sunshine with a QK mini heart. I can't wait to see what this dare inspires you to do, as always its fantastic when you share a link to your creations and we can pop along to see.

lovely lovey dovey Blush card Rhi ! lol

great wedding invite samples for your friends too ! My choice is 6 ! lol - not that it matters of course .

& yes expect the unexpected isnt it with dress hunting & blowing the budget - dont be like me & choose something you might cringe at in 10 yrs time ! lol - I was fashion crazy then & loved a Christian Lacroix dress which had loads of bright colourful embroidered flowers on white - so I had it copied & the colours turned out instead like the mauves of your wedding invite samples instead of bright & tropical ! duh !
